FREE Craft Night at NYC Resistor

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

I’ve been saying since college that I’m going to have a weekly craft night for my friends. I keep failing for a multitude of reasons: people get busy, apartments are small, I have to work, I ran out of hot glue, I forgot to buy more googlely eyes, etc. Instead of continuing to fail, I’m going to start going to NYC Resistor’s open craft night.

NYC Resistor is a self-proclaimed hacker collective who offers classes in everything from beer-making to soldering 101 and build awesome things out of LEDs and lasers. But their weekly craft night is a complete open forum. You just show up to their space with your latest project and sit and craft while you watch everyone else knit bike covers, splice plastic animals, turn Lego guys into key chains and bedazzle the shit out of objects. So you can bring your friends, and make a few new ones.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
